Hi I am looking to purchase an AV Receiver to go with my new TV/DVD Player and would really appreciate your thoughts and advice on this. I currently have the following: - TV : Panasonic TX32DTX40 DVD : Panasonic DMREH50 inc 80GB HDD CD Player : Marantz 63 MkII KI Signature Speakers : Bose Acoustimass 5 I have got ridof my old Rotel amp and am now looking for a decent mid-range AV Receiver and also looking to upgrade the speakers. AV Receiver I will be using this for both AV and music on a roughly 50/50 basis. The model I was looking at was the Denon AVR-2105 but the Denon AVR-2805 seems to be better in terms of current functionality as well as future proofing etc. I've looked at the Yamahas, Pioneers and Marantz amps but the reviews and posts seem to keep coming back to the Denons? I thought the Marantz might be good but two seperate dealers that I respect told me that these are more AV than music now and the Denon would be more suited to my needs? Any thoughts? Speakers I am looking for a 5.1 set up to start with and the potential to go to a 6.1 or 7.1 in the future. these need to be a compact set of speakers as the room is primarily our sitting room and I don't want it to be full of speakers! (also read this as I won't be allowed to have any such set up by you know who!!) I like the look of the KEF 5005 but they are a tad expensive for me at circa £1,000 but also thought about the KEF 2005.2's, M-S Genies (Had MS speakers before) and the Wharfedale Diamond 90's. Before I go and set up a demonstration what other speakers would you recommend that would work well with the amp and why ? thanks in advance.
